Sony Xperia M2 Aqua Sees KitKat At Last

Sony is a great company to pay attention to, especially if you have one of their Xperia line of devices. The Xperia line of devices is their smartphone line, including phones as the recently leaked Xperia Z4 and Z4 Ultra, and dating all the way back to the unique Xperia Play.  The company has a unique design language now, one that features flat cool sides, edged with smooth, rounded plastic or aluminium. This design language has been present for years now, and the Xperia M2 Aqua is no different.

The Xperia M2 Aqua, which saw its United States release in late October of this year, features some more moderate, mid-field specifications, and now it features KitKat. The specifications of this Xperia that hasn’t gotten much spotlight with all the flagships floating about, guns blazing, are rather ‘low’, but still perfectly fine for someone that uses a smartphone for normal day-to-day tasks. As a refresher, it’s got a 4.8-inch display with a resolution of 540 by 960, 8 GB of internal storage, a Snapdragon 400 processor running along at 1.2 Ghz across its four cores, and a gigabyte of RAM to run the whole show with. So, it’s nothing too super-powered, but it’s a great device all the same. And now, the device can have its share of the Android 4.4.4, KitKat-y goodness.

Xperia Blog has let us know that the device has already received generic builds of 4.4.4 for the U.S. M2 Aqua, D2406, variant, as well as localized updates for the D2403 variant in Malaysia, the Middle East, the Philippines, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Thailand, and Ukraine. The two variants now have the most widely-available up-to-date versions of Android, so you should, if you have the device, go ahead and update as soon as you can, get ahold of the software and install it or wait for OTA update to come your way. The device is also available in its standard form, which saw its own KitKat update a little while ago. If you’ve got this device, what do you think of it? Do you think it’s smart for Sony to have a single, unified design language for its mobile phones, or should it branch out more? Let us know down below.
